Abstract

Gegeneophis goaensis and G. mhadeiensis were described by Bhatta et al. in 2007 from Keri Village (Goa) and Chorla Village (Karnataka) respectively from a set of three specimens for each species. The present account expands the morphological and morphometric variations within the species with new site records for both species. Habitat sharing with other congeneric species is discussed.
